Desert Vista junior Dani Jones continued to show she can compete with the nation’s best on Saturday with her performance at the Nike Cross Nationals in Portland.

Jones, who won the Arizona Division I cross country title three weeks ago, finished 15th at the sport’s marquee national event with a time of 17 minutes and 55.6 seconds on the 3.1-mile course at Portland Meadows Race Track to earn All-American status.

It’s the latest accomplishment for Jones as she finished as a runner-up in the 3200 meter run and won the 800 and 1600 meter runs at the state track meet in the spring.
